Manufacture Royale 1770 Haute Voltige


The Manufacture Royale 1770 Haute Voltige is designed as an aspiration to freedom, with an easy-to-set independent second time zone and a raised balance wheel atop the dial.

 "Man is free at the instant he wants to be," wrote Voltaire, the eighteenth century philosopher and founder of Manufacture Royale in 1770. Today, the 1770 Haute Voltige encourages the freedom to travel by offering a choice of two independent time zone indications, directly adjustable through use of  the crown. The 1770 Haute Voltige is free from the constraint of a single time zone and thus instills a taste for adventure. In this highly ethereal composition, Manufacture Royale has raised the balance wheel and counter on the second time zone above the dial, at different heights, reminiscent of aerial acrobatics.
The new MR07 calibre is the seventh developed by Manufacture Royale since its rebirth in 2010, further demonstrating the creative energy and skill of the manufacture.  This new automatic calibre boasts a double technical feat: a central hour-and-minute display linked to an off-center second time zone display and utilization of the crown to set the second time zone. As the second time zone is independent, it accommodates all time zones, including the rare, which vary by a half hour or quarter of an hour.

1770 Haute Voltige, black dial, 45mm stainless steel case, hand-sewn alligator strap, MSRP $36,300.00 USD.
